When posting an answer, sometimes it happens that someone else already posted it while I was writing.

Is there a way to get a notification like in stackoverflow?

you could use my prevent simultaneous edits plugin as an example...

1. write to db table who is clicking answer (userid and postid go to db table by ajax)

2. check on answer page, if an entry exists and display a notification (exclude userid==userid)

... not that easy but feasible.
Yes it's not that easy so I prefer waiting for gideon or someone else adding it to the source code than personally messing with the DB. Thanks though, I should use that prevent simultaneous edits plugin.
